I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and National Certified Counselor who has 5+ years experience in the field of addictions and co-occurring disorders. I am also an EMDR trained therapist who work with individuals who have experienced trauma such as PTSD, complex trauma and sexual abuse. Moreover, I work with individuals, couples and families.
I work with issues such as substance abuse, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, trauma, anger management, women issues, emotional disturbances and other life stressors. My areas of interest includes love and sex addiction, codependency and relationship conflict.
I believe that early childhood experiences play a major role in our lives as adults. If we were neglected , lacked nurture and support; this affects our ability to have meaningful and healthy relationships and impair our self-esteem and self-worth. I utilize an integrative approach in therapy based on each individual’s needs; however when working with these issues, I often utilize inner child work and cognitive behavioral therapy.
